Hello Parabola community!
I myself am a longtime Arch Linux user, and since about a year ago, I
started with Parabola, too. But now I will speak for the Purism, SPC.
For all of you who haven't heard about us: in short, we are trying to
manufacture laptops ("Librem") that will be completely free from
proprietary/binary software and firmware. You can find out more about
our goals and current status on our website: https://puri.sm.
Now, to the point. Besides our PureOS (Debian based OS, without
non-free), we want to offer other distros as an option to our customers.
Those will come on an USB drive, with small fee just to cover the USB
cost and labour. We are considering to offer Parabola live install image
as well, therefore, we want to ask if this is okay with the Parabola
We decided to go for Parabola because we did some research and we found
it to be the most "free" of all other endorsed distros, as well as we
think its bleeding edge software can support our hardware without
problems. We even based our own process of liberating our PureOS on
Parabola's "your-freedom" blacklist.
I'll be happy to answer any of your question, and I'm inviting you to
check out our forums (https://forums.puri.sm/), tracker/wiki
(https://tracker.pureos.net/) and perhaps jobs list
